Srt Protocol | Let Network Transmission More Stable And Low-latency

What is the SRT protocol?

SRT is an Internet transport protocol initiated by the SRT Alliance jointly created by Haivision and Wowza. It is an open source, free and flexible application specification. Its performance is as good as a proprietary protocol and can be used between different products. SRT is a very popular open source and low latency video transmission protocol. Using SRT reliable transmission technology, it can successfully realize high-definition video transmission and distribution in a common Internet environment and between different places.

Features of the SRT protocol:

Low latency

SRT is a network transmission technology that can transmit streams in real-time and accurately under complex network environment. It uses UDP protocol at the transport layer, fast and low overhead. It supports point-to-point transmission without intermediate server relay. Low-latency Internet transmissions from a few milliseconds to a few seconds can be achieved

Safe and reliable

Although the UDP protocol is an unreliable transport protocol, it is unstable in the network environment of Internet jitter and packet loss. However, the powerful data recovery capability of the SRT and forward correction technology (FEC) applications can reduce the possiblity of packet loss to ensure SRT transmission stability. Besides, the SRT can also perform AES encryption to ensure the information security of the data during transmission.

In addition, for companies or organizations that use firewalls to protect private network security, the handshake process used by SRT supports outbound connections without the need to open dangerous permanent external ports in the firewall, thus maintaining the company’s security policy.

All ORIVISION products support the SRT protocol

SRT allows you to establish a connection directly between the source and the target. It has the advantages of security, stability, low latency and low network overhead. It is a good choice for Internet transmission. ORIVISION’s product line of all SRT video encoder, video decoders support SRT protocol, which solves the problem of high latency and instability of Internet transmission, and welcomes you to consult for any interests.
